WOMEN with brains have more fun in bed than the average bimbo, scientists found. A study of 2,000 female twins revealed that those with a high emotional intelligence (EI) had more orgasms.
The findings suggest a low EI — the ability to manage feelings — could be linked to common sexual problems. Three out of ten women have trouble reaching a climax.
All participants completed questionnaires about their sexual behaviour and performance, and answered questions designed to test their EI.
Women in the bottom 25 per cent of the EI range had twice the normal risk of infrequent orgasm. Experts hope the findings could improve sex therapies.
Study co-author Andrea Burri from King’s College London said: “EI seems to have a direct impact on women’s sexual functioning by influencing her ability to communicate her sexual expectations and desires.”
A total of 2,035 volunteers aged 18 to 83 were involved in the study. Using twins makes it possible to disentangle genetic and environmental risk factors.
